Head up Sulphur Mountain for extensive views of six mountain ranges in the Canadian Rockies. Named for the hot springs on its lower slopes, the mountain features both hiking trails and a scenic eight-minute gondola ride to its peak. At the summit, you'll find a 1903 meteorological observatory that still contains antique furnishings. The area at the top also includes a short historical walk and well-maintained observation decks where you can admire the scenery and snap photos.

  • Whether you hike up the mountain, or take the gondola ride, this is a must see when you come to Banff. 360 views, history, and some exercise. Food is a bit pricey on the peak.  more »
  • I advise all those who are able to do the hike rather than take the gondola. The climb is long and still difficult (2-2: 30), but it is a nice trail. And the pride it feels arriving finally at the top is rewarded by the splendid view of nature around us.

  • This is a great way to get to the Summit of a mountain without working hard climbing it. The view is spectacular and I highly recommend it!  more »
